 Item 7.01  Regulation FD


On September 12, 2014, the Registrant announced that its Mt Todd holding costs, which have been reduced significantly in the last 18 months, are expected to remain within the presently achieved seasonal ranges for the coming year as a result of the Government of the Northern Territory of Australia’s (“NT Government”) commitment to non-recourse funding for the first year of a proposed multi-year program with the objective of reducing the inventory of acidic metalliferous water at the Mt Todd site.  The reduction will occur through a combination of water remediation and the subsequent discharge of remediated water in accordance with the corresponding permits.  The Registrant is currently working with the NT Government on detailed plans and budgets for the execution of this work.  The scope of the initial program to be funded by the NT Government between now and approximately the end of July 2015 includes additional water treatment which is expected to start in the next several weeks, discharge of remediated water in accordance with the applicable permits, subsequent environmental monitoring, analysis and reporting, and evaluations designed to aid in the definition of the scope of work for subsequent years’ programs. This arrangement with the NT Government is expected to be a multi-year program, with the goal of reducing the water inventory on site by 70%.
